First-team All-American center Landon Dickerson has declared for the NFL Draft after winning a National Championship earlier this month at the University of Alabama.

I have decided to continue chasing my dreams of being a professional athlete,” Dickerson wrote in a message posted to his Twitter account. “It has been a lifelong dream that I have had the opportunity to pursue up to this point. I will forever be thankful for my time here. The University of Alabama will always be a part of me, and I will be a part of it.”

Dickerson couldn’t play in the title game against Ohio State outside of a handful of kneel downs at the end of the game due to a torn ACL sustained in the SEC Championship against Florida. Dickerson was named a first-team All-American, first-team All-SEC and earned the Rimington Award as the national top college center.

Dickerson played the last two seasons for Alabama after joining the program as a graduate transfer from Florida State. He started games at both center and guard for Alabama over the past two seasons with all 11 starts this year coming at center.

  1. That moment when he came in at the end of the championship game was one of the best things in college football all year. That kid loved Bama with all his heart and they loved him back. He’s a damn good player too. Hoping he heals fully and has a great NFL career.

  2. The Miami Crimson Tide and Tua welcome you, Davonta Smith and Najee Harris. They might sprinkle a Nittany Lion LB though.
